NICE Guidelines

The NICE epilepsy clinical guideline covers the diagnosis, treatment and management of epilepsy in children, young people, adults and older people. The guideline makes recommendations for treatment and care provided by GPs and by specialists.

It also makes recommendations about when someone should be referred to a specialist centre (a clinic or unit with particular experience and expertise in investigations or treatment of epilepsy that is difficult to diagnose or treat – sometimes called a tertiary centre). 

Special considerations concerning the care of women with epilepsy and people with learning disabilities are covered.
